In an interview with CNN today, Marco Rubio said in no uncertain terms that hes not going to be the vice president.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, widely speculated to be a top pick for the Republican presidential running mate, once again firmly denied he would join the GOP ticket.
Im not going to be the vice president, Rubio said Friday in an interview with CNN en Españols Ismael Cala. Im not.
We have two options. We can assume that Rubio meant to imply he wouldnt join the 2012 GOP ticket under any circumstances OR we can parse his words. He didnt say he wouldnt join the 2012 GOP ticket, after all. He said hes not going to be the vice president. Maybe that means hes still open to run with Mitt Romney but he doesnt think they would win.

I was confused. :)
I think he went to a Mormon church for 3 years or so as a child. I believe he is Catholic now.
You too, Onyx.
I will tell you this:
A.) I fully belive Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee.
B.) Last August I believed Rick Perry would barnstorm his way to Tampa, crushing all contenders...
C.) In 2007, I fully believed the election would be between Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani and...
D.) In 2008, I believed wholeheartedly that this country would never elect someone named "Hussein" as president.
So my track record at predicting electoral outcomes ain't so good as of lately.
Good. We don’t want amnesty. We will not tolerate amnesty. Get lost.
I think Rubio is Catholic...there is a new Pub congresscritter from Idaho...who beat that awful Walt minnick....who is Mormon but is also hispanic...Raul Labrador....
Rove said the exhaustive examination of Romney’s membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints was unnerving for Rove, who has strong ties to Utah. Rove, who is not a member of the LDS Church, graduated from Olympus High School and attended the University of Utah.
Well then somebody better get on the horn to Savage and he had a guest on his show spreading BS about Marco Rubio!!! I’m not a regular listener but I caught this the other night as I was drifting off to sleep and it woke me right up!!!
Rubio was born in the United States and is therefor a citizen by birth and eligible to be President.
“Identity politics” in a Rubio vs. Obama contest would have been incredibly interesting.
True. I believe there are more Hispanics than blacks.
he’s only saying this because he told Bill O’Reilly he wouldn’t be VP...
Maybe he isn’t elegible.........;^)
Not going to be VP?? Good call because it appears from his bio that since his parents became naturalized citizens after he was born in the US, he is not “natural born” and thus just as unqualified to hold the office of President as BHO is.
True. Black population is about 13-14%, Hispanic/Latino population is about 19-29%.........
He’s been doing it.
LOL. I hate to this, but you’re looking better this time for improving your record, but..... maybe he can’t buy the nomination.
Well, as I've said before, I'd bet my next paycheck that Romney gets the nomination.
...and I'd also be perfectly happy if a thousand Freepers posted "Eat crow, Drew68 you POS!" as Newt Gingrich walked away victorious in Tampa.
Sometimes it's good to be wrong.
The underlined above, would be an answer to my prayers. At least, one of my prayers.
